She is also the executive producer behind the hit reality TV series The Real Housewives of Johannesburg.

Recently she hosted her female crew members and DRUM at her stunning home to celebrate the success of the show.

She shared with the attendees that the idea of the show was born 5 years ago, and it has been a challenge to get it where it is now.

Furthermore, she spoke about how she survived her severe depression and managed to raise three children. 

"I tried therapy, but it didn’t work. Things got so bad I would even google ways of committing suicide and going out quickly and pain-free because I’d had enough of my life," she said. 

It might have taken her long five years to be where she is now but the star is happy and celebrates her strength. 

"I’m happy all my hard work and endurance didn’t go to waste."
